aurora, columbine, virginia tech and newtown, connecticut. names that have become iconic in america's bizarre and shameful epidemic of gun violence. we're here because we know that america is greater than those awful moments. we're here because we envision an america that's known as the nation that solves this terrible gun violence epidemic once and for all. we can do this. we can do this. they say friday's horrific mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school changed everything, and it has. it is a tipping point. reliably pro gun lobby senators have shifted position saying they can no longer bring themselves to oppose gun policies. republican commentator joe scarborough said sandy hook changed everything. president obama said, we can't tolerate this anymore, we must do better than this. so friday changed everything. for me, though, it was a shooting on the observation deck of oh the empire state building when my brother was shot. for others it was a school bus in chicago, or a parking lot in florida. for jim and sara brady, a day in 1981 changed everything, when jim stood behind t

. thanks for joining us. >> they're all in d.c. interesting. "america live" starts right now. megyn: fox news alert on the investigation into the school shooting in newtown, connecticut. a new report today says police have yet to find any evidence that the accused gunman was on medication for my mental health issues. welcome to "america live", everyone. i'm megyn kelly. family members and friends described newtown gunman adam lanza suffering from some type of mental illness or mental disorder which could have contributed to the murderous rampage. but at this point police are still trying to get their hands on his medical records. a white house brief is getting underway. we expect the issue of gun violence may come up. it has in the past couple days. sunday night president obama said this was the 4th time in his presidency that a community has been torn apart by a mass shooting. he promised to do everything in his power to prevent another tragedy. several reporters pressed the press secretary jay carney on this issue, asking why the president has not done more to take the lead on this iss

of communications for gun owners of america. eric, let me start with you. what is your organization's response to the tragedy in connecticut? >> well, certainly our heart goes out to the families of the victims. i can definitely relate with what they're going through. i myself lost a child through a drowning accident and so i totally understand the angst and pain they're going through, but i would say what the senators are talking about and the politicians are talking about in going after the firearms and banning these or placing more restrictions is not going to make people more safe. in fact, what we have, we've tried this approach over and over. if you look over the last couple decades, almost all except for one of the mass murders that have occurred in this country, they've happened in these gun free zones because good people are scared to defend themselves. on the other hand, in places, though, where guns have been available these mass shootings have been brought to an abrupt halt like the woman who did this at a church in colorado springs, colorado, as well as an assistant principal in m

think we all know that every income tax filer in america is going to pay higher rates come january 1st until congress acts. so i believe it's important that we protect as many american taxpayers as we can. and our plan "b," would protect the american taxpayers who make $1 million or less and have all of their current rates extended. i continue to have hope that we can reach a broader agreement with the white house. that would reduce spending as well as have revenues on the table. i think it would be better for our country. but at this point, having a backup plan to make sure that few american taxpayers are affected by this increase as possible, moving down that path, is the right course of action for us. >> good morning, first i'd like to say that i think all of our hearts and prayers are with the families in newtown, connecticut. as a father, i cannot even imagine the utter horror that those families are going through right now, grieving the loss of their children and their loved ones. as far as the fiscal cliff is concerned, as the speaker has said, we remain committed to trying to m

's an antidotal sense now among faith leaders all across the country and faiths across america that it's time for us to do something more. and i think, clearly, in the stages of doing that, here in washington, but also around the country is gathering faith leaders from a variety of faith traditions and essentially just putting a counterweight on our legislators and our executive branch to say there is another voice in america. and it's a voice that believes there are common sense consensual things that we can do to curb the access to guns and to bring a stop to the violence. >> a counterweight, richard, no matter what we do right now in the immediate aftermath of all of this does not mean that a tragedy like newtown may not happen again. there might be a weapon sitting in someone's house right now that could be in the mind-set of someone that they're planning to do something on the heels of this tragedy. but there are those voices out there that would like a long wish list of things to be done in the wake of this tragedy. including an assault weapons ban. house minority leader nancy pelosi wa

to transform america. you think about the rhetoric he is spewing out where he wants to raise taxes on one class of americans and he wants to encourage more americans to be dependent upon government, it looks to me like president obama wants to transform this country from a nation of exceptionalism and individual opportunity into we are dependent on government and we aspire to be slaves of the state. >>neil: you don't buy the argument that has been out there, this is not the president or the white house, but this has been coe lated a benefits checklist, a menu, you can check off, because it is all out there but it has just now been put together. >>guest: don't you find it odd we want as a nation to have a portal and put all the tremendous amount of government programs into one place so more people could take advantage of this? should we be teaching americans individual responsibility and how to self sustain themselves? i told someone the other day being on welfare and government programs ain't going to help you buy a house in the suburbs or send your kids to college. >>neil: just wait. just wait
